"Nice gravel."

This is the real deal mother earth approx. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

GloFish 29020 Final Thoughts

"A few minutes."

I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. Fast delivery and item true to description. I WOULD recommend buying this item! The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away.

"No complaints."

I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. Color is good contrast to the Beta. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. So will just see if color stays-God willing! Stir periodically and then your good to go!

This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. Will definitely purchase again when needed. Will definitely purchase again when needed. This is the real deal mother earth approx. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent.

"This is your in between!"

I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! Really just rinsed a little and ready to go.

"I recommend!"

Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. So will just see if color stays-God willing! I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium.

"Rocks are expensive."

Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light.

"A few minutes."

So will just see if color stays-God willing! Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium.

This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm.

"These rocks are perfect!"

This is the real deal mother earth approx. It will take you a while to properly clean. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.

Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart.

So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. Don't use any soaps or anything else. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel.

"Looks good in tank!"

I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate.

"Just as described."

It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too.

Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon.

"VERY GOOD."

If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. I wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. We bought this for a glo fish tank.

The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. Stir periodically and then your good to go! Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species.
